Publisher's Summary

The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Taiye Selasi’s Ghana Must Go, read by the actress Adjoa Andoh. This is the story of a family - of the simple, devastating ways in which families tear themselves apart, and of the incredible lengths to which a family will go to put itself back together.

It is the story of one family, the Sais, whose good life crumbles in an evening; a Ghanaian father, Kwaku Sai, who becomes a highly respected surgeon in the US only to be disillusioned by a grotesque injustice; his Nigerian wife, Fola, the beautiful homemaker abandoned in his wake; their eldest son, Olu, determined to reconstruct the life his father should have had; their twins, seductive Taiwo and acclaimed artist Kehinde, both brilliant but scarred and flailing; their youngest, Sadie, jealously in love with her beautiful college friend. All of them sent reeling on their disparate paths into the world. Until, one day, tragedy spins the Sais in a new direction.

This is the story of a family: torn apart by lies, reunited by grief. A family absolved, ultimately, by that bitter but most tenuous bond: familial love. Ghana Must Go interweaves the stories of the Sais in a rich and moving drama of separation and reunion, spanning generations and cultures from West Africa to New England, London, New York and back again. It is a debut novel of blazing originality and startling power by a writer of extraordinary gifts.

    "Awesome debut"

    This audiobook is inspired, interesting and very gripping. Brilliantly narrated, like watching a 3D movie.

    Story
    "Sad but very good book!"
    Where does Ghana Must Go rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Not listened to many so cannot really Judge. Americanna by Adichie was great though!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favourite character was Kehinde, I thought he was quite deep and thoughgtful.


    What does Adjoa Andoh bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    I could never read fiction, only read non-fiction. I think she made the story engaging and real.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yeah I was close to tears towards the end, so many things were unravelled.


    Any additional comments?

    The story was initially boring, I nearly stopped listening but It soon became enjoyable and I had to finish it.
